In the spring of 2017, SFUU congregation members participated in a project where they assessed their family greenhouse gas footprints. We then aggregated these family footprints into a congregation-wide greenhouse gas emission profile. Following this initial assessment, we held several workshops educating congregants on ways they might reduce their footprints. The purpose of this project is to recalculate the congregation-wide profile in order to see if our education and awareness raising efforts have had an impact. The Green Sanctuary Team is hoping to broaden the member participation in this aggregate calculation to generate interest in other projects that will follow in the succeeding months in the Spring of 2019. These projects are varied and will offer opportunities to reflect on the impact of Climate Change on our lives and promote additional ideas to help us lower our person greenhouse gas emissions.
